✨✧ Chuck BerrySan Francisco Dues ... CD
Chess/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest Chuck Berry albums ever – and one of the greatest, too! The sound here is very different than the hard rockin Berry of the early days – and the record's got kind of a laidback, trippy, and slightly bluesy approach – one that has Chuck singing in these homey vocals we really love, and playing guitar with this kind of watery tone that's really unique – almost airy, but still with a bit of bite – and really quite hard to peg! Backing is relatively spare – electric and acoustic piano, rhythm guitar, bass, and drums – and the whole thing is very rootsy, with tracks that include "Your Lick", "Festival", "Bordeux In My Pirough", "My Dream", "Viva Rock & Roll", "Lonely School Days", and "Let's Do Our Thing Together".

✨✧ MorrisseyBona Drag (2LP anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sire/Reprise, 1990. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A seminal solo set from Morrissey – one that brings together all the singles and EP tracks he issued in the last few years of the 80s – when he moved away from the solid album format of Viva Hate, and just let his ideas hit the market as they came to him! That approach was a bit like that of The Smiths – who sometimes meant more to the world in their progression of singles than albums – but it was also frustrating to fans in the digital age, especially Americans, who had less access to singles in that format – hence the need for this full length set, which turned out to be one of the strongest full statements by the singer after stepping out on his own. Titles include "Piccadilly Palare", "Interesting Drug", "November Spawned A Monster", "Ouija Board Ouija Board", "Everyday Is Like Sunday", "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys", and "Suedehead". 2LP pressing features the bonus tracks and improved mastering of the 2010 20th Anniversary edition!

Jacky ChalardJe Suis Vivant, Mais J'ai Peur De Gilbert Deflez (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $15.99
A pretty amazing surrealist French cosmic concept album from Jacky Chalard – with lots of spacey synth prog atmospherics and spoken French dialogue! This is a record in which Finders Keepers boasts similarities to both Melody Nelson and La Planete Sauvage, and truth be told, the music not only lives up to that lofty description – it's completely correct! Chalard and a group of French rock heavies featuring the members of Dynastie Crisis team up with Gilbert Deflez, a radio personality who read science fiction stories over the airwaves for a tripped out experience, and wholy credible prog funk rock set, to boot! Includes "L'Agonie", "L'Interrogatoire", "Le Perroquet", "Pollution", "Si Je T'Offrais Une Branche D'Amour (La Mandragore)", "Apre L'Apocalypse" and more. 3 bonus tracks on the CD: "Corto Maltese" (vocal version with Sylvia Fels and the instrumental) plyys "Super-Man-Super Cool (LP version)".

✨✧ SurvivalSimmer Down ... CD
Strawberry Rain, Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's impossible to simmer down with a groove this great – a wicked blend of African funk and fuzzier psych touches – all served up by Nigeria's legendary Survival! The set was recorded at Ginger Baker's Arc Studios, and has his own blend of rootsy elements, complicated rhythms, and more straightforward touches on guitar and vocals – all delivered with a mode that's a bit more freewheeling than Zamrock material of the time – nicely tripped-out in all the best ways! The vocals and instrumentation have the same sort of sinister edge you'd expect from the cover – and the mix of offbeat and groovy is somewhere in the same territory as the legendary 70s recordings by Blo. Titles include "Ripples", "Emotions", "Simmer Down", "Everybody's Got His Own Kind Of Trouble", "Jungle Justice", and "Chewing Dust". (Global Grooves, Rock) CD

✨✧ VariousGreenwich Village In The 60s – Beginnings & Branches Of The New York Folk Revival ... CD
Warner (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really well-done collection that gets at the full range of folk sounds in the Village scene of the 60s – and one that also traces some of its influence in farther reaches too! The package was put together by Warner, and features some real gems from the Elektra catalog – mixed with other great bits from Vanguard, Prestige, Tradition, and even Columbia Records too – all very important forces in folk music that really had a strong presence in New York, and were often working hard to grab the freshest young talents to make the scene. The 2CD package features over 40 tracks – some classics mixed with lesser-known treasures – and Richie Unterberger's notes really do a great job of situating the music and illuminating the Village a the time. Titles include "He Was A Friend" by Dian & The Greenbriar Boys, "Close The Door Lightly When You Go" by Eric Anderson, "Hang Me Oh Hang Me" by Dave Van Ronk, "I Can't Slow Down" by Tim Hardin, "Patriot Game" by Liam Clancy, "House Un-American Blues Activity Dream" by Richard Farina, "The Cuckoo" by Jean Ritchie, "Urge For Going" by Tom Rush, "Fare Thee Well" by Bob Gibson, "500 Miles" by Hedy West, "The Street" by David Blue, "The Death Of Queen Jane" by Joan Baez, and "Deportees" by Cisco Houston.

CreationCreation ... LP
Atco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The group's half-soul, half-rock – and plays with some righteous touches that include a bit of jazzy riffing and the occasional reggae undercurrent. Carol Stallings lays down some great lead vocals on a few tracks, and Leon Patillo seems to lead the group on keyboards and male vocals – as well as write a good portion of the tracks. The album's got a nice compressed style that sits nicely between genres, and which could have crossed the group over big – and titles include "Joy", "Facts", "Burnin Out My Youth", "I'm In Love", "Nothing Can Stop Us Now", "Survival", and "It's Gonna Be Alright".

Dandelion SetThousand Strands – 1975 to 2015 ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, and some of the trippier psych revival sounds of the following decade! These guys might have been right at home on Bam Caruso or early Creation Records – and share a similar love of the weirder, offbeat qualities of the late 60s – blending fuzzy performance with equally freaky production – using light touches of funk or analogue electronics along the way. Tracks on the record work together to create a very vivid audio scene – one that's echoed by the equally trippy liner notes by Alan Moore – and titles include "Harps Ascend", "Cosmic Flux History", "Tone Garden", "Pristina Strawberry Girl", "Redherringbone", "A Rasher Of Wind", "Gardense", and "The Third Programme".

HeronHeron (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with 9 bonus tracks) ... CD
Dawn/Wasabi (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $31.99
A beautiful batch of British folk tunes from Heron – and a really unique album that was actually recorded outside in a field – which makes for a very different sound! The music might be dubbed "acid folk", but it's got a slightly warmer, slightly redemptive quality – and is a really great illustration of the Brit folk revival at its best – that very different approach to US folkies of a few years before – served up with this mix of simplicity and sophistication that's completely sublime. Titles include "Car Crash", "Yellow Roses", "Upon Reflection", "Smiling Ladies", "Lord & Master", "For You", and "Carnival & Penitence". CD features 9 bonus tracks too! (Rock, Rock) CD

✨✧ LiminanasCrystal Anis ... LP
HoZac, 2012. New Copy ... $12.99
Noirish French rock from The Liminanas – the second great record in a row from multi-instrumentalist Lionel and sultry singer/drummer Marie! Crystal Anis is their first album for Hozac – and one that equals, if not tops their underground instant classic debut for Trouble In Mind. Honestly, no other neo-classic garage psych revivalists anywhere in the world hits our sweet spot like The Liminanas. They carry a darkness-tinged, fuzzy guitar vibe inspired by early Velvets, the sometimes spoken, sometimes sung sexiness of Serge Gainsbourg and his chanteuses on the vocal tip, and an overall narcotic vibe that sinks in and doesn't let up. Yes, the influences are familiar, but what they do with them is uniquely hypnotic and wholly distinctive. The songs jump back and forth from French to English, but it's really all about the mood here. We can't recommend 'em highly enough! Titles Include "Salvation", "Longanisse", "AF3458", "Kinam", "Hospital Boogie", "Bad Lady Goes To Jail", "Crystal Anis", "Belmondo", "Betty And Johnny", "Une Ballade Pour Clive" and the closing instrumental "I'm Dead".

This Kind Of PunishmentRadio Silence/Reaching An End (colored vinyl pressing) ... 7-inch
Superior Viaduct, 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99 9.99
Early work from this groundbreaking New Zealand trio – two tracks from their earliest years, both with a very stripped-down and moody vibe! "Radio Silence" is brilliant – subtle lyrics, slow-forming guitar, and a slight bit of fuzz that almost prefaces the psych revival of the late 80s. "Reaching An End" has this beautiful echoey piano – almost with a Durutti Column-like vibe, with a pretty melody next to the much darker lyrics. 7-inch, Vinyl record

TuxedomoonHalf-Mute (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Ralph/Crammed (Belgium), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... About February 3, 2017 (delayed)
The group's last recording before departing their San Francisco roots – a strange artful document that bears little resemblance to the US scene at the time, and which has sounds and styles that remind us much more of work coming from the German and North England experimental groups of the period. Electronics are at the core of the set – used in spare but effective ways – sometimes in support of darkly poetic vocals, but other times concerned only with themselves – exploring sound textures and rhythms in a manner that recalls some of the more tuneful work by Throbbing Gristle. There's a sound here that's sinister, yet subdued – a refreshing change to the excesses of the period, and with a quality that has allowed it to travel the passage of time extremely well. Titles include "Fifth Column", "Seeding The Clouds", "Loneliness", "James Whale", "What Use?", "Volo Vivace", and "Tritone". LP, Vinyl record album

Unit 4 + 2Concrete & Clay – The Complete Recordings ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
The complete recordings of Concrete & Clay – a British group of the 60s, but one that had a slightly different sound than some of their contemporaries! The initial years of the sextet has the group harmonizing in these warm ways that are a bit like some of the folk-revival groups in the American scene of the early 60s – especially given the way the voices take center stage above some often-light instrumentation. Yet as the group move on, they also pick up a bit more beat group elements – a bigger beat at the bottom, and more bite in their instrumentation – which is when they really seem to take off, and find a very special place to craft their amazing vocals! The approach is almost a combination of Sunshine Pop and Brit Invasion modes – served up here on a 43 track set that features all of the group's recordings from 1964 through 1969. Titles include "Concrete & Clay", "500 Miles", "Rainy Day", "Baby Never Say Goodbye", "I've Seen The Light", "I Was Playing Games", "So You Want To Be A Blues Player", "3.30", "Face In My Head", "Wild Is The Wind", "Woman From Liberia", "Sorrow & Pain", "Hark", and "I Won't Let You Down".

Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away from record – as the mix of sounds, moods, and music comes together with a maddening frenzy – hardly the languid speed you'd expect from the early years of hippiedom – and instead, an inspirational stream of styles and ideas delivered with trademark Zappa dexterity and wit! The album's divided into two long passages – "Absolutely Free" and "The MOI American Pageant" – with tracks that include "Plastic People", "Amnesia Vivace", "The Duke Regains His Chops", "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Son Of Suzy Creamcheese", "Status Back Baby", and "The Duke Of Prunes".

VariousAnother Splash Of Colour – New Psychedelia In Britain 1980 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99
A really well-done set – one that brings together a very diverse se of tracks, along with a huge booklet of notes – all to focus on the surprising revival of psychedelic sounds in the UK during the early 80s! Unlike the psych revival in the US – which was mostly confined to the paisley underground of the period – the return of fuzz and freak really took a wide array of forms in England in the years after the initial rise of punk – from groups that returned to a core garagey style that was almost pre-psych, to others who maybe tripped out on solos even more than those in the past, to some who fused the best elements of the genre with more contemporary UK pop modes, and others who paved the way for the big Brit indie boom of the C86 years – sometimes even nudging the music surprisingly far in the charts! All those styles are here – and plenty more too – in a mighty nice box set that features 64 tracks in all – with titles that include "Keep Your Voice Down" by The Earwigs, "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" by The Times, "Slow Patience" by The Attractions, "Endless River" by The Brainaic Five, "Do I Have To Be Here" by The Way Out, "Sunspots" by Julian Cope, "Hilly Fields" by Nick Nicely, "Wivenhoe Bells II" by Cleaners From Venus, "Work" by Blue Orchids, "Night Of The Jackal" by Charlie Harper, "Pass Myself" by Third Eye, "Still Dreaming" by Marble Staircase, "A Day Out With Jeremy Chester" by Biff Bang Pow, "Where Are You" by The Primevals, and "Dancing In My Mind" by The High Tide.

VariousBack On The Street Again – Australian Funk, Soul, & Psych (Mostly) From The Festival Vaults ... CD
Festival/Warner (Australia), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of rare funk and soul from the Australian scene of the 70s – and a collection that goes way past some of the more familiar ground covered by other compilations! There have been a few key looks at the Aussie scene over the years – all of them really revelatory assemblages of funky cuts that never got much circulation outside of the island nation – and which point to a surprisingly huge legacy of great sounds in the 60s and 70s – a time when Australia was riding high on new national growth and cultural pride! This set digs even deeper than those – and dips into a variety of genres, even some great funky rock – and pulls together cuts from the Festival label archive, plus a few other sources – really mixing in some gems we never would have heard otherwise, alongside a few bigger names from the scene. Titles include "Funky Max" by Johnny Rocco Band, "City Sounds" by Daly Wilson Big Band, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "Feel Awright" by The Id, "Superstition" by Ray White Revival, "Africa" by Festival Studio 24 Orchestra, "Weird & Wonderful" by Brute Force & His Drum Band, "The Rat Suite" by Blackfeather, "Sea That Swells" by Tamam Shud, "Odyssey" by Khavas Jute, "The Wrong Time" and "Indian Rope Man" by McPhee, "Painted Ego" by Count Copernicus & The Cosmic Fire, "Vehicle" by Al Style, "Be There In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Oz Bump" by Hot Source, "Do The Uptight" by Ross D Wyllie, "Back On The Street Again" by Billy Thorpe, and "A Day In The Life" and "Hair" by John Sangster.

VariousLadies Of Too Slow To Disco – More Late 70s West Coast Yachtpop You Can Almost Dance To (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
A great set of tracks that's billed as music "you can almost dance to" – and which hits this sweet midtempo groove throughout – filled with female vocals, and served up in a wicked soulful style of AOR! The collection's an excellent all-girl companion to the previous Too Slow To Disco sets – and may well be the best so far, as there's a current of soul that maybe didn't show up that strongly before – as the singers unabashedly go for deeper modes in some of their vocals, while the instrumental side of the tracks glow nicely with sweet keyboards, riffing guitars, and just the right touch of slightly funky rhythms! There's plenty of gems here we might have overlooked otherwise – definitely the best side of the "yacht rock" revival of the past few years – and tracks include "You Can Do It" by Evie Sands, "Be Here In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Gotta Lotta" by Lauren Wood, "It's The Falling In Love" by Carol Baker Sayer, "Crazy" by Valerie Carter, "Isn't It Something" by Franne Golde, "Opening Up To You" by Laura Allen, "Temptation" by Leah Kunkel, "Disco Tech" by Carole King, "Dance The Night Away" by Doris Abrahams, and "Take Me With You" by Lyn Christopher.
